Inline Tweet Fix
My website decided randomly to stop displaying tweets in posts, leaving a bunch of random tweet URLs in the text instead. I’m slowly working my way through past posts to fix this. But if you spot one missing, please let me know. Thanks!
Family and Health Update
So what went on with our extended families?
- My Father-in-law collapsed (he’s fine now by the way) but no one knows why
- He was banned from driving for six months because no one knew why
- We have had to pay more for petrol to get NJ to the grandparents on wifey’s work days
- My Dad thought Mum’s Alzheimers had taken its final turn and she was going to pass.
- So I had to have ten days or so away from wifey and NJ to support Dad
- Then we had to fork out a huge amount for me to get the train back. (Thank you Patreon Supporters as, basically, you paid for that ticket).
- I’ve been back home over a week and still haven’t recovered.
With the extra financial pressures and the likelihood of Mum passing, along with the separation from wifey and NJ, everything sort of went down the drain. I do give updates on Twitter but my usual state at the moment is: in high pain, struggling with cold symptoms and feeling bogged down with depression. There are positives from time-to-time and I try not to disregard those. But times are tough at FJ HQ these days.
The Blog Wasn’t Silent
But bits and pieces still happened on the blog, just not very much, so let’s have a look.
New Personal Post
As I was down at Dad’s and/or stressed about Mum, doing normal guides etc was out of the question. However, I did manage a new FanFiction chapter. Once I got back I also did a new event guide.
Ill Omens Skirmish Event Guide
Once I realised that Ill Omens was not just a Level 120+ event, I took a look myself. This LOTRO Skirmish event is one I have not covered before here on FJ HQ. So, after running it a few times I finally put my Ill Omens Guide together. Thank you to other LOTRO community folks who have contributed insights and screenshots to this one.
What about SWTOR?
My posts recently have been driven simply by what I felt I had capacity for. Instead of attempting to blog about SWTOR, I have been playing more of it. I’ve mostly focussed on SWTOR’s Onslaught Expansion, either doing actual story or enjoying the dailies on Onderon.
New SWTOR Content is Coming
In March 2020, assuming I don’t get called South again, there is more SWTOR content planned. I have a fairly simple one to start with, then will try to get back to guides as my capacity increases. I only hope it does.
I am part of the SWTOR Content Creators Programmer (aka Influencers) so I will be doing my best to return to creating content.
TL;DR – A Weird Month, but Thank You
All my content will always be freely available. However, if you'd like to support myself and my family, please consider buying us a virtual coffee. Either way, thank you for visiting, I appreciate it!
